August 26 is National Dog Day.
As a tribute to it, one should consider purchasing a subscription to Arkansas Rep’s Spring 2020 season.
Why does that relate to National Dog Day?
Because one of the productions is The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time.
Based on Mark Haddon’s best-selling novel of the same name, this play by Simon Stephens has won five Tony Awards, six Drama Desk Awards, and seven Olivier Awards, including Best Play from all three.
It tells the story of Christopher, a 15-year-old boy who describes himself as “a mathematician with some behavioral difficulties” who has never ventured alone past his street. Now he is on a mission – an investigative adventure that will upturn the world of his family and community forever.
Through innovative design and storytelling, it puts the audience inside Christopher’s mind as together they go on this incredible journey. The production will run from April 1 to April 19.
The other two shows in the lineup are Ann and Bye Bye Birdie.
